As a first year keeper I have a lot of questions... I have 2 boxes a deep on the bottom and a medium. I saw the queen today in the medium box, yet in a lower box there was a queen cell. The lower box was full of nectar and pollen, but not all of the frames in either of the boxes had been completely drawn (probably 8/10 in each box).
I did not check all of the frames for queen cells, and did see capped brood and larvae. Would there be more queen cells on other frames? Why would there be a queen cell right now? Should I add on a third box to give them more space? I don't want to split the hive right now as I only wanted one in my first year
